“A good lunch on a lovely terrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We were late - 2pm - for lunch at this wee place hidden away next to a local parc but they were very accommodating. The set lunch was a fine tomato soufflé starter followed by Brittany cod (they even let Cal substitute chicken)in a cream sauce then a fruit tart. Good value at under €15 each.

“Almost surrounded by parkland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Popped in here for a coffee after advertising our forthcoming Medieval Fete (at Pouancé on 6/7 July) during Craon's Market Day. It's set in a quiet park overlooking the lake. Shall try it for a meal sometime.

“My favourite restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

It does not matter whether you choose the daily lunchtime menu or the evening à la carte ( which changes seasonally), the food is always amazing. The presentation of the food is always such a pleasure and the combinations of flavours and ingredients is inventive and always works! This has been my favourite place to eat in the area for many years.
The lovely owners have worked hard since taking over a few years ago and now have a sizeable clientele, so much so that you now have to book to make sure of a table at any time!
English is also spoken if needed. They can cater well for vegetarians if you book ahead and let them know, something that is rare in this part of Mayenne.
Location is lovely, it is at the side of the small lake where you can have a walk ( 15/20 minutes to walk around on the flat) and where children can play on swings etc.
It is adjacent to the town campsite

“a gastronomic delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

This was recommended to us by someone who had trained there. We arrived before service started but were welcomed anyway and shown to our table, given the menus and asked if we wanted a drink whilst the staff finished their meal. The restaurant has a wonderful location by a lake. All the staff were extremely pleasant. efficient and well trained. The menu was superb especially the mis en bouche. The lady patron has some english and spends time with all diners. This was definitely the best meal we had in France during our 6 weeks travelling. Booking is essential. We wont spoil the menu by trying to describe it and do it justice. Go there and be beguiled.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
